making, leaking secrets from the american government. snowden sat down with brian williams with his first interview on american television. he insists he is a patriot and tried to work within the system. the former nsa contractor said he complained repeatedly to supervisors before refleeing the country and leaking details about the government's spying programs. he says he wants to come back to the united states, but is still proud of what he did. >> i may have lost my ability to travel. but i've gained the ability to go to sleep at night and put my head on the pillow and feel comfortable that i've done the right thing. even when it was the hard thing. and i'm comfortable with that. >> the obama administration says clemency or simply dropping the charges is not an option. >>> rapper snoop line, joe montana and other big-name celebrities will host a benefit part of snoop's no gun allowed campaign. the events will start with a discussion about the importance of gun violence solution followed by an auction of snoop's paintings and other belongings. benefit the no-gun allowed initiative
interview with n.b.c.'s brian williams in moscow it was snowden's first u.s. television appearance here is snowden telling williams how capable any well funded intelligence agency is at tapping into cell phones. since you turn it on it can be there they can turn it into a microphone they can take pictures from it they can take the data off of it but it's important to understand that these things are typically done on a targeted basis right it's only done when people go this phone is suspicious but of course the government definition of suspicion is open to interpretation to discuss last night's interview i was joined earlier by norman solomon executive director of the institute for public accuracy attorney bruce fein and the jesselyn radack director of national security and human rights at the government accountability project i started out by asking norman what was the one thing that stood out to him in this interview. oh i think edward snowden made very clear and underscored his independence he has the kind of integrity. is extraordinarily historic when it's combined with a willingnes

dr. maya angelou passes away, but her words are eternal. >>> and a couple of incredible finishes in the nba and the nhl playoffs. the last-second drama that kept two teams alive to fight another day. this is "way too early"! >>> hi there, everybody, good morning, i'm thomas roberts. it is thursday, may 29th. welcome to "way too early," the show that is not going to complain about the length of the playoffs anymore even though they totally drag on forever. forever. so we're going to talk more about that in sports. >>> but we want to start out with what's taking place as voices grow louder in d.c. we've got the v.a. watchdog is out with its initial report on the phoenix v.a. facility. and the news is not good. investigators found data was manipulated and reports were concealed in an attempt to hide prolonged wait times. the report says 1,700 individuals were not placed on wait lists at the center in phoenix. and the ones who were had to wait, on average, 115 days for treatment. that's five times as long as administrators initially reported. and while the report does criticize the bureaucracy of the v.a., it does not directly address the allegations that vets died while waiting for care. previously investigators found 17 of the 40 alleged cases showed no evidence that the deaths were linked to the delays. and while the v.a. secretary, eric shinseki, finds the findings reprehensible, democrat senators mark udall, john walsh and kay hagen have called on president obama to replace shinseki, joining several prominent republicans. the white house called the report, quote, extremely troubling. >>> at west point, president obama used his commencement address there to lay out his vision for america's role in the world going fort. and obama defended his foreign policy saying critics' stance were engaging in partisan politics. the president also spoke about america's new number one threat, decentralized extremists abroad. >> military that you have joined is and always will be the backbone of that leadership. u.s. military action cannot be the only or even primary component of our leadership in every instance. just because we have the best hammer does not mean that every problem is a nail. for the foreseeable future, the most direct threat to america at home and abroad remains terrorism. but a strategy that involves invading every country that harbors terrorist networks is naive and unsustainable. today's principal threat no longer comes from a centralized al qaeda leadership. instead it comes from decentralized al qaeda affiliates and extremists. many with agendas focused in countries where they operate. so we have to develop a strategy that matches this diffuse threat, one that expands our reach without sending forces that stretch our military too thin. >> president obama then called on congress to finance a new $5 billion counterterrorism fund to build partnerships with the governments of countries where some of these extremist groups thrive. >>> edward snowden says there is no evidence that his leaks of classified information have damaged national security. in an exclusive interview with nbc's brian williams, the computer specialist and self-proclaimed american spy challenged the u.s. government to prove his actions put the country at risk. the hour-long conversation was held in moscow where the 29-year-old is living under temporary asylum. snowden described the nsa's surveillance tools, claiming analysts can watch americans as they draft e-mails, essentially monitoring their thoughts while the former contractor claimed some government programs are useful, he says others are downright dangerous and therefore needed to be exposed. >> in your mind, though, are you blameless? have you done, as you look at this, just a good thing? have you performed, as you see it, a public service? >> i think it can be both. i think the most important idea is to remember that there have been times throughout american history where what is right is not the same as what is legal. sometimes to do the right thing, you have to break a law. >> from north carolina and while i, after this interview, am free to fly back to the united states, you can't. does that hurt you? >> i may have lost my ability to travel, but i've ingained the ability to go to sleep at night and put my head on the pillow and feel comfortable that i've done the right thing, even when it was the hard thing, and i'm comfortable with that. >> the obama administration is outraged by snowden's revelations, with secretary of state john kerry calling on him to, quote, man up and face the espionage charges against him. >> what he's done is expose, for terrorists, a lot of mechanisms which now affect operational security of those terrorists and make it harder for the united states to break up plots, harder to protect our nation. if this man is a patriot, he should stay in the united states and make his case. patriots don't go to russia. they don't seek asylum in cuba. they don't seek asylum in venezuela. they fight their cause here. there are many a patriot. you can go back to the pentagon papers, dan elsberg and others who stood and went to the court system of america and made their case. edward snowden is a coward. he is a traitor, and he has betrayed his country. and if he wants to come home tomorrow to face the music, he can do so. >> strong statements there from secretary kerry. >>> a seven-term republican senator is making a bold prediction about the push for marriage equality. senator orrin hatch of utah says while he's opposed to same-sex marriage, it's becoming clear that it will soon become legal across the country. >> sooner or later, gay marriage is probably going to be approved by the supreme court of the united states, and certainly as the people in this country move towards it, especially young people. you know, i don't think that's the right way to go. on the other hand, i do accept whatever the courts say. >> marriage equality currently exists in 19 states plus washington, d.c. >>> a new study out reveals an alateraling rise in obesity around the world. researchers say that 30% of the world's population is now overweight or considered obese. and that works out to 2.1 billion people. a 145% increase from 1980. the u.s. topping the list with 87 million americans considered obese. about 13% of the world's total. >>> let's shift gears and talk about business today. we had investors hoping for a better day, at least out of the gate as you look at what we see on the indices. yesterday red arrows across the board. now, yesterday ended a four-day record-setting win streak. the ten-year treasury yield also hit its lowest point since last summer. jeff cutmore is live in london. this was anticipated because it can only go on so long before it takes a knock. >> yeah, absolutely. we're starting to sedat that which is a bit indifferent, and that's got traders sitting on her hands. and i think you'll see the same again today early on because we get a revision of the first quarter gdp number, and we're looking at a minus 0.7. that's a 0.7% contraction here. we'll also get some jobless claims numbers as well. so that number is expected to be better. but a lot of people in the market hoping growth is improving for the second quarter. and very quickly, that dr. dre deal has been done by apple. $3 billion to buy beats which will give them access to the streaming music service and apple, of course, will be able to sell the headphones in its stores. so if you're into dr. dre and beats, then you can now get them online at apple. >> all right. that was such a big deal. other thing, i know we talk a lot about pharma news, but we have this interesting story about cialis, the company wanting to make the pill available over the counter. what's the likelihood that the prescription for that's going to go away? >> well, i think they've got a pretty good case to make here. you know, they're saying this $2 billion drug is going to come off payton over the next few years here, and eli lilly saying look, there is an unmet demand. we think a lot of men with self-diagnosis. we think they should be able to get cialis over the counter. and if they with persuade the regulator on this, then i think there's a reasonable chance this erectile dysfunction pill could start to be sold over the counter rather than forcing men to go through what can at times, i'm sure, be a very embarrassing diagnosis process through the doctors. so i think eli lilly have got a pretty good chance of getting this one through. back to you. >> okay, jeff, thank you, sir. much appreciated. >>> there was perhaps no more poetic icon in america today than maya angelou. she is being remembered for a breathtaking body of work and a life that is renowned in its eloquence and pow irto endure her words. in 1950s as a dancer and a singer and she went on to conduct streetcars in san francisco. she was the first african-american female streetcar driver. later working alongside leaders of the civil rights movement, her seminal book "i know why the caged bird sings," told of life in the jim crow south, sexually assaulted by her mother's boyfriend at the age of 7. she didn't speak for five years. but she would eventually find her voice. and in 1993 her words lifted her to the heights of power, sharing the podium with newly elected president bill clinton at his inauguration. >> for a number of years, i was a moute, and my grandmother used to braid my hair. and she'd say, sister, mama don't care what these people say about you not talking, that you're an idiot or you're a moron. mama don't care. mama know when you and the good lord get ready, sister. you're going to be a preacher. and she could see me stand on a platform with the president of the united states, speaking to all america, my grandma. what do you say? >> there is a true yearning to respond to the singing river and the wise rock, so say the asian, the hispanic, the jew, the african, the native american, the sioux, the muslim, the french, the greek, the irish, the rabbi, the priest, the sheikh, the gay, the straight, the preacher, the privileged, the homeless, the teacher, they all hear the speaking of the tree. >> amazing, just think of the ripple effects of her words. and just as we look back at her life, angelo appeared in the hit tv series "roots," and her list of accolades grew from there. she received a medal of freedom from president obama as well as winning grammys and emmys. she died at her home in winst winston-sal winston-salem, north carolina, where she taught at wake forest since 1982. angelou was 86 years old. >>> let's talk about women a little more and talk about the most powerful women in the world. "forbes" annual list is out, and some of the top names may not surprise you. imf managing director christine lagarde at number five, the president of brazil is fourth while melinda gates sits at number three. janet yellen is second on this list. and at number one, german chancellor angela merkel. the list made us wonder who do you think should sit at number one? tweet us your most creative answers using #waytooearly. we look forward to hearing from you. >>> still ahead on "way too early," lebron james has what may have been his worst game, but the heat were still in a position to close out the pacers. did miami's supporting cast come through in the clutch? >>> and strapped in and ready to fly. this base-jumping dog is pretty cool, but it's not the only animal ride we have planned for the cooler. that and a check on weather when "way too early" comes right back. a thursday edition. and look. maybe i'll button my coat when you come back, or not. jen doesn't like it buttoned. anyway, we'll be back after this. i missed you, too.ou. hi buddy. mom! awesome! dad!! i missed you. ♪ oh... daddy. chevrolet and its dealers proudly support military appreciation month. with the industry's best military purchase program, for all that have served. what's your favorite kind of cheerios? honey nut. but... chocolate is my other favorite... oh yeah, and frosted! what's your most favorite of all? hmm...the kind i have with you. me too. but with less energy, moodiness, and a low sex drive, i had to do something. i saw my doctor. a blood test showed it was low testosterone, not age. we talked about axiron the only underarm low t treatment that can restore t levels to normal in about two weeks in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18 or men with prostate or breast cancer. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant, and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these symptoms to your doctor. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. serious side effects could include increased risk of prostate cancer, worsening prostate symptoms, decreased sperm count, ankle, feet or body swelling, enlarged or painful breasts, problems breathing while sleeping and blood clots in the legs. common side effects include skin redness or irritation where applied, increased red blood cell count, headache, diarrhea, vomiting, and increase in psa. ask your doctor about axiron. beautiful day in baltimore where most people probably know that geico could save them money on car insurance, right? you see the thing is geico, well, could help them save on boat insurance too. hey! okay...i'm ready to come in now. hello? i'm trying my best. seriously, i'm...i'm serious. request to come ashore. geico. saving people money on more than just car insurance. >>> to sports now. the heat and the pacers in game five of the eastern conference finals. lebron james and some serious foul trouble, limited to less than 25 minutes. he scored just seven points. that's a career playoff low for him. we jump to the fourth. james manages to knock down that three-pointer to tie things at 81-81. but this game belongs to paul george who scored 21 of the 37 points in the fourth. here's a big three that gives the pacers a late four-point lead. now, the heat get a chance for the win, trailing by two with ten seconds to play. but chris bosh hits from the rim. indiana lives to play another day, 93-90 victory. miami still leads the series 3-2. tonight the thunder and the spurs each looking to take an edge in game five in san antonio. >>> to the stanley cup playoffs. the blackhawks on the brink of elimination against the kings in game five. we jump to the third period in that one. kings with a 4-3 lead when ben smith nets the equalizer after a scoreless overtime to double o.t. we go. >> now kane. he scores! >> michael handzus with the game-winning goal there, keeping chicago alive. blackhawks get the 5-4 win but still trail in the series, 3-2. and tonight the rangers head back to the garden for another shot to close things out against the canadiens. >> it's going to be a late night tonight. good basketball, good hockey. >> how are you going to do it all? >> a nap. >> nap? all right. we'll see how you fare tomorrow morning. >>> now, we have bad news for golf fans out there. tiger will not be on the prowl at the u.s. open this year. woods will miss his second major championship in a row as he recovers from back surgery. woods last played at the wgc cadillac championship in march. and he had surgery to eliminate that pinched nerve. later that month it caused him to miss the masters for the first time in his career. despite the time off, tiger remains the third ranked golfer on the pga tour. so we wish him a speedy recovery. easy for me to say. >>> i want to go back to the heat and the pacers in game five. and now lance stephenson engages in trash talking in that series with stephenson admittedly trying to get into lebron's head. stephenson stepped it up, a little bit of a notch last night. the pacers' guard leans over, blows into the ear of james. check out lebron, his reaction. he can't believe it. it looks like it worked pretty well last night. >> lebron's reaction is the best part. >> yeah. >> because he tries no the to react. and he has to. >>> let's get a check on weather. >> like what's up with this dude is pretty much what he was saying. >> hey, look, you've got a windy forecast. look at all of your arrows. >> you could say that. a little breezy. down along the gulf is where we by far so seen the worst weather. yesterday in louisiana you got drenched. a lot of localized flooding. now more flooding. so from new orleans to mobile, driving i-10, by far the worst weather in the country right now. and we could see an additional localized three to five inches, especially right there near mobile bay. so that's the biggest problem. later today we could have some minor airport trouble with your typical afternoon storms there in atlanta and florida. and look at the temperatures this morning. we had the a.c. on in most of connecticut two days ago. it was mid to upper 80s. it is 41 this morning at hartford. some of the suburbs are in the 30s. so it's a chilly new england morning. we're about 10 to 15 degrees cooler right now than yesterday. and we will see a few showers, too. even d.c. is much cooler. they were 92 a few days ago. now 66 for a high with showers. >> it really is amazing for this late in may. thank you, sir. appreciate it. >>> coming up at the top of the hour on "morning joe," brian williams' exclusive interview with edward snowden. why snowden said he considers himself a patriot, not a traitor, and why secretary kerry says he should come back to the u.s. and prove it once and for all. >>> then we're going to huddle around the water cooler. why one direction's controversial video may put their american tour in jeopardy. jen, have you heard about this?

snowden, ahead of brian williams' interview with edward snowden on nbc news tonight. here's part of their interview on snowden's decision to stay in russia. >> personally i'm surprised that i ended up here. the reality is i never intended to end up in russia. i had a flight booked to cuba, onwards to latin america. and i was stopped because the united states government decided to revoke my passport and trap me in moscow airport. so when people ask why are you in russia, i say, please, ask the state department. >> remember that whole interview with edward snowden tonight on "nbc nightly news with brian williams." and again in primetime. imagine his argument saying that most data that is private remains private. >> it's interesting that edward snowden is still being cast in sort of a heroic light, despite at what we saw at south by southwest. where a lot of people felt his appearance there was totally wrong. there's a lot of appreciation, from tech ceos, that at least we know this is going on now. very interesting that he has those comments right ahead of brian williams' interview, we
